Woodrow Wilson, the Fifteenth Point
By David Loth
Lippincott, 1941, 365 pp.
A sound and readable biography of Wilson, sympathetic but not uncritical. Mr. Loth has read the pertinent literature and documents, including Wilson's private papers, and has woven their substance into a consistent and well-proportioned fabric. He gives particular attention to reconstructing the Paris peace negotiations and the impact upon them of Wilson's character -- "the fifteenth point" -- on which humanity rested its hopes for a better future.
